Cyberpunk 2077 launched on December 10th, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC. The game's launch could've gone down better to say the least; after years of development, Cyberpunk 2077's legacy became that of a glitchy, unfinished product and one the worst video game launch since that of No Man's Sky.
Nevertheless, CD Projekt Red has done their best to continue updating (repairing) the game since then. Recently, the formerly celebrated studio put out a press release wherein they declare that development of the next-generation version of Cyberpunk 2077 is moving along smoothly. At the moment, the studio insists the upgrade will be ready for Q1 2022.
CD Projekt Red remain true to their morals in allowing those who own Cyberpunk 2077 on the previous generation a free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 and/or Xbox Series X/S — which is to say that although the PS4 version of the game is playable on the PS5 already, for intance, any player with a copy of the PS4 version is entitled to a digital copy of the new and improved PS5 version and the same goes for the Xbox consoles.
It's said that the next-generation upgrade will debut "alongside another major update for all platforms." Exactly what that update entails, we don't know — though it's likely to do with ironing out the copius glitches. Perhaps Cyberpunk 2077 is on track to become what it was meant to be from the start. Fingers crossed.
